Spark Therapeutics – Genable


Create a multimedia video illustrating the underlying genetic technologies and revolutionary genetic procedure developed by Genable Solutions (Spark Therapeutics Ireland Ltd).


We worked directly with Siobhan Gaynor at Spark Therapeutics Ireland to produce a script and storyboard balancing basic information for a lay audience with detailed information for expert viewers. Honing the message down to its most fundamental points — and resisting the urge to infuse the video with dense visuals and language — was the key to the project.

We took a multimedia approach using video and 3D animation to quickly communicate the location and scale of the relevant anatomy, demonstrate its constituent parts and illustrate the proposed treatment.

Once we began to work at a molecular level, we were able to move away from a photo-real treatment and focus on visual communication. Hand sketching and rendered still images were a key part of the workflow at this stage. Our team’s design and applied arts backgrounds was crucial in allowing us to collaborate effectively with the client, sketching their descriptions and making design suggestions in real time.


We produced a series of images and animations which were used to attain funding and eventually secure a successful acquisition of the company and its IP by Spark Therapeutics Ireland.


We commissioned ALL3D to produce an animation outlining the disease and technology we are developing to treat this rare inherited condition. I was very impressed with the high-quality graphics and the level of detail Doug and his team engaged in to produce same. We have had numerous compliments on the animation, which is hosted on our website, I have no hesitation in recommending ALL3D for their excellent service and end products.
